Scenes from the neighborhood, last night and this evening.
“And it makes me wanna take a back road
Makes me wanna take the long way home
Throw a little gravel in my travel
Unwind, unravel all night long”
Rodney Atkins, Take the Back Road
I count it as my good fortune to have been raised by some wonderful parents whom I greatly admire and appreciate. Here are some recent pictures of my dad while we were at Hilton Head last August. In the one he is looking out on the famous 18th hole of Harbour Town at Hilton Head National Golf Course. In the other one, he is pictured with my brother Lance. The other photographs are a step back in time to 1957 when dad was playing basketball for the Belleville Buffs in north central Kansas. Dad is #43.
Faurot Field at the University of Missouri has never looked finer with the new turf, new SEC and Tiger head logos, and the black, diamond-studded end zones. Here are a few pictures I took today and a link to a larger collection where you can see more photos from various angles. It was a beautiful day to take photographs. The only thing missing was a tailgate, the game-day pageantry and a game. Are you ready for some football?
